Which new LG phone did you like better? LG V50 vs LG G8
by Preslav Kateliev / Feb 26, 2019, 9:26 AM
The LG G8 has the new Z Camera on the front, which allows for Face ID-like face detection or even mapping the veins on your palm to use as a biometric lock. Additionally, the Z Camera can read air gestures, so you can control the G8 without even touching the phone — useful for when your hands are wet or dirty. The G8 also has a Crystal Sound OLED display — no earpiece here, but the top half of the screen vibrates to transfer sound... yeah. It still has a Boombox speaker at the bottom, which works together with the Crystal Sound to create a nice, spacious sound picture.
The V50 doesn't have the Z Camera and uses a "boring" old earpiece instead of a vibrating OLED screen. But it does have some things that the G8 doesn't. For one, the LG V50 has a regular, wide-angle, and telephoto camera on the back (the G8 is missing the latter) and both a "normal" and a wide-angle camera on the front (again, G8 only has the regular selfie camera). There's also this fun, yet possibly gimmicky secondary display case for the LG V50, which has the ability to turn it into a semi-gaming console or a somewhat foldable phone for a fraction of the price. And, of course, LG V50 will be 5G-compatible, in case that matters to you.
So, we wonder, which of these phones did you find more attractive?

I can't see any meaningful difference between them. Both are huge phones with last year's design and no real innovation.

No real innovations. What about the time of flight camera, which Apple is dropping in favour of LG's new time of flight camera. Apple's FaceID is a POS in comparison to LG's new time of flight front camera. Apple's FaceID setup has an iR projector that sends out dots of light (around 30,000), and can only do a face. LG's setup can do a lot more including air gestures, AR, and more. Especially since it can generate a full 3D point map of what is in its view. Apple's setup cannot do that, and I guess that is why Apple is going with time of flight camera setup instead. Also LG still has a finger print scanner. Something that no new iPhones give you anymore. Apple forces you to use what they want you to use. Remember the one company that isn't innovating is Apple.
